I really like this article on Elle Decor's site about color trends. They have some good ideas on colors, which is what I need right now since I'm trying to decide on a color for my kitchen/family room. I'm leaning towards a slate blue, but I'm just narrowing which one to use. Have any of you used a light slate blue that you liked?
Some of the color pro’s all-time favorite colors include:
1) Sherwin-Williams: Determined Orange (6635) “It's is a safe orange. It’s bold without being garish or too bright. It’s a beautiful backdrop in a den or family room.”
2) Pratt & Lambert: Bayou (24-28) “This dreamy color makes you feel as though you are in the middle of the ocean.”
3) Benjamin Moore: Glass Slipper (1632) “Everything looks good with this faded neutral sky blue.”
Plum is the new Black
Color consultant Bonnie Krims swears plum is on its way to replacing black. Her plum suggestion: Benjamin Moore’s Purple Lotus (2072-30). “It’s a deep, rich plum and a nice neutral backdrop,” says Krims.Credit: Benjamin Moore
Touch of GrayA bedroom whose walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Sidewalk Gray (2133-60) evokes a calming influence. The room represents “Modern Tranquility,” a Benjamin Moore 2008 palette characterized by neutral hues that emphasize spaciousness with a quiet suggestion of color.
